Sunday morning President Trump tweeted a video of himself from when he participated in Wrestlemania 23 in 2007 when he squared off against WWE CEO Vince McMahon during the “Battle of the Billionaires.”

This comes after weeks of a growing feud between CNN and Trump as Trump has vowed to fight back against “fake news” and what he sees as the mainstream media’s continued assault on him after he says they hardly scrutinized President Obama.

He defended his amount of tweeting as “modern day presedential” and called out CNN saying, “I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!”
